Brightest Kind of Darkness (Brightest Kind of Darkness 1) by PT Michelle-YA Paranormal Romance
Kindle format given by author for review
Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate…until she dreams a future she can’t ignore.
After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.
Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.
Ok, I mean, how could I NOT want to read this book. Look at that gorgeous AUTUMN themed cover! I admit that I've been in a bit of a paranormal reading slump lately. Fortunately for me, I've hit a winning streak. This book is included in that WIN!
It took me a while to really get Nara, but once I had her figured out...I loved her. She dreams the future as it directly relates to her. What she doesn't realize is that because of her actions, she affects other people's fate. Ethan, the new mystery guy, seems to be a bit different. He and Nara develop a connection based on similar abilities. Together they try to figure out what is happening in the town and why they have their special abilities to begin with. It really was interesting to see how the story unfolded.
I liked this book mostly because, I do believe that your actions have consequences. While this is written with a paranormal aspect, the lessons to me...are pretty real. I believe that everyone has a course to follow in life. Lessons to learn. I also believe that there are times that your path can change. This book presents an intriguing perspective into this theory.
If you're looking for a refreshing paranormal, check this out. Not only is it well written, but it held my attention throughout the whole book.
